A book which tells the story of a group of Cook Islanders recruited by the New Zealand army in 1966.

The Last Army Recruits is the culmination of sporadic research spread over 10 years by first-time author Moana Moekaa and documents the lives of the 30 men who left home to start a career in the New Zealand army. It was the research, looking for the men, interviewing them in the little time Moana had with them, sourcing photographs, getting all the little bits and pieces together, checking things, deciding upon the layout, and editing that were the difficult areas.
